Utah County Parade of Homes

Every year I hit up the parade of homes with my good friend Mandy.  I wasn't able to see very many homes this year and to be honest I was pretty disappointed with most of them. There was some really really really bad design. But there were a few homes that I found inspiring. 

*I'm sorry but I can't provide sources for these images. I've linked to each builder's website so you are welcome to try asking them*

The first house we visited was a modern home down by Ezra Lee Design + Build

See that green plant wall up on the loft? It's a living wall. The whole wall is succulents and other plant life with a drip watering system and everything! Crazy. 

I liked this idea of sliding barn doors that were actually huge mirrors. Really cool. 

A library room. One can only dream right? 

Two settees a the dining room table is an interesting idea. 

I liked a house done by D.R. Horton. They used a lot of Dwell Studio fabric

I thought this arrangement of white vases on the table made a great centerpiece. 

We also visited a home done by Cadence Homes designed by Four Chairs Furniture

I really love this little red chair. 

The last house I visited was done by Ivory Homes. They always do such a great job and in my opinion have by far the best decorating. 

I love the Schumacher Sinhala on the chairs. 

Love the botanicals above the fireplace. 

Velvet spool chairs? Yes, please. 

Then how about this Chiang Mai duvet cover? 

I thought this room was really fun and I loved the mix of patterns.

Cresthaven Model Home

I am so excited to report that the model home is done! It was A LOT of work but really a lot of fun to do. It was actually really liberating to be able to design a home however I wanted. I was pretty much the only client! At the same time I had to be cautious that I decorated a home that appealed to both men and women of all ages and stages of life. 

I was given a pretty tight budget so this home is all about high and low decorating. I splurged on certain pieces and really tried to pinch pennies on others. 
In the coming weeks I'll be posting all the juicy details of this home including sources and as much pricing as I can remember. Until then feel free to check it out in person if you are in the Utah area. It's a townhome located in Traverse Mountain. 

4301 North Cresthaven Lane
Lehi, Utah 84043

You can visit it from 2:00 - 6:00 pm. Monday - Saturday

I also want to thank the amazing Jylare for coming out and taking pictures! She did such a great job and I can't wait to share them all with you on my blog.
